People seemed very happy with Tom Holland’s performance as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War,” so much so that his first solo outing in the role in the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is already looking like a hit.
That’s good news for the actor who says, if he has his way, hopes to be playing the character for decades. Speaking with Empire, the actor revealed that he has already pitched a plan that would have him playing the character for twenty years:
“Peter Parker is a character we see [in the comic books] as a 15-year-old boy and then as a 35-year-old man. So I have an idea of what I’d like to do, and I’ve pitched it and it’s already been taken into the boardroom. It would be really cool if it pans out, because it means I would be Spider-Man for a very long time.”
Sony and Marvel currently have Holland locked down for the role in ‘Homecoming, the dual upcoming “Avengers” films, and a “Spider-Man” sequel. Where things go from there will be determined at a later date.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” opens in cinemas on July 7th.
